Wes Welker, Clay Matthews and DeMarcus Ware star in Depend commercial (video)

In late February, a tweet from New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker tweeted that he had just finished shooting a commercial for Depend undergarments alongside Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews and Dallas Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware. The finished product has been released — and I assume the release was not accidental (rimshot!) — in all its glory.

The announcer guy prefaces his request that the football players try on the Depends with the caveat that he is aware they don’t need to wear them. Good idea, lest he wanted to get pummeled by three professional football players. At least in the real world and at least by Matthews and Ware. Welker? I don’t know, I think the guy holding the mic might be able to take Wes, but that’s another story altogether.

In any event, it’s a pretty clever and amusing commercial, and it was all for charity, according to Welker, as it will raise money for prostate cancer research, makes it that much better.

Finally, since I am as uncreative as I am lazy, allow me to finish up this post with the laziest pop culture reference possible, made even lazier due to the fact I closed out the earlier post on this story with the same one: Oops, I Crapped My Pants, everyone. Enjoy.
